Wanted: Male (hardy) Kiwi branch in bloom

My Ken's Red looks poised to bloom for the first time since it put out 3 or 4 flowers the year after planting.  It's probably been at least 8 years.  The other two females, and the male which was set back, aren't looking as precocious.

I'm wondering, when its time, if somebody has a blooming male hardy kiwi I can come by and snip a bouquet from, to pollinize my Ken's Red.  Assuming I'm not traveling at the time or something.  I'm East of Vancouver WA.

My males have buds for the first time (I've lost 2 males previously).  If you need just a small bouquet, let me know when yours are blooming and I'll see if my males are blooming.

Jafar,

You don’t necessarily have to have a male hardy for pollination.  I only have a male fuzzy, and he does the job just fine for my Ananasnaya and Jumbo hardies as well as my Hayward fuzzy.
